are a person who wants to solve problems and get things done. quite frankly, take a look at the u.s. senate. it's where dreams go to die these days. there is so little leadership. fromfrustrating if you are a person who wants to move the agenda. i'm going to take a chance here and i want you, powers to react to this in 2008 i thought john mccain waged a terrible campaign. i thought he didn't expose the challenger barack obama. i thought he was afraid and intimidated by him. i think i was wrong about that. i don't think john mccain is a guy that backs down and i think i was wrong but i kept questioning why don't you bring it to him. bring it to him. here is a guy who voted president, no accomplish. s in the senate. nothing on his resume out of the ordinary. just let him have it and he wouldn't. the last four years the only leader i have seen in america and mccain goes out of the ideology. he goes against his own party when he feels it is mccain. i mean, mccain is the guy that wants the truth about libya. mccain is the guy who wants to solve the immigration problem. mccain is the guy. i think mcc
